Traditionally, when you think of pizza toppings, you might assume that a traditional tomato base is the only option. This would include tomatoes, garlic, herbs, and a touch of sugar for sweetness. However, there are now more options available.
You can add your preferred toppings to the pizza such as green vegetables, mushrooms, tuna, or white meats. Whether you add more cheese or not depends on your personal preference. The pizza has a rich and creamy taste already. Alternatively, you can use a cauliflower pizza base, and you can find our recipe for it here.
While not traditional, creamy pizza bases can offer a unique and innovative taste experience. If you typically enjoy creamy pasta sauces like carbonara over tomato-based sauces like Bolognese, you might not like the idea of tomatoes overpowering your pizza.
Some pizza toppings don’t complement tomato sauce as well. However, if you enjoy spinach, mushrooms, onions, bacon, or spicy jalapeños, trying white sauce could add a unique flavor. The mildness of the sauce can balance well with these toppings.
The recipe is versatile enough to use for making a creamy pasta sauce or as a filling for a cream-based pie. It’s always good to have an adaptable recipe on hand.
